;;; ;;;; ;; ; ;;;;; ;;;; ;; ;;;;;;; ;;;;;;;;;, but this year is more
exciting than ever. A shiny new football stadium, a major international golf
tournament, additions to our famous mall and the centennial of our national
parks are just a few of the big things in store. First-timers will be amazed at all
there is to see and do, while repeat visitors and even lifelong residents will find
someplace new to explore.
You probably already know that Minnesota is home to the headwaters of
the Mississippi River, has more than 10,000 lakes, and is anchored by the Twin
Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. But did you know it’s also No. 1 for business
(CNBC), No. 2 for biking (League of American Bicyclists) and boasts the top city
park systems (The Trust for Public Land) in the country? Once you’ve been here,
you’ll see why Minnesota consistently ranks as one of the best places to live,
work and play.
This guide provides just a snapshot of the many fun, authentic and
memorable experiences you can have on a Minnesota vacation. Use it for
inspiration on where to go, where to stay, what to do, and what to eat and drink.
